Balluff introduces IODD web server for IO-Link device integration

August 3, 2018 - Balluff's IO-Link master portfolio gets a power boost with built-in web server functionality to integrate IO-Link devices. The web server supports IP address configuration and network monitoring and has the ability to configure, parameterize and monitor IO-Link devices, and provide diagnostics information.                                                         The web server uses IODD (IO-Link Device Description) files that come with each IO-Link device to display, edit and update device parameters in human readable language. The enhanced web server functionality is readily available with all Balluff IO-Link masters for EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and EtherCAT network protocols.  The added capability eliminates the need for separate software or tools for configuring IO-Link devices.
